Server Admin Service Error

I am running an OS X Server with Snow Leopard and in Server Admin I've recently been getting an error everytime I click on a different service saying, "The Service has encountered an error.  Try to refresh the view (DNSName/Servicename). (kNetworkError)

I replaced my Server's hostname with DNSName and Servicename for whichever service I clicked on.  What is kNetworkError?  How can I fix this?  I think that it is disrupting my iCal Server's connections.

Thanks!

Did you say you replaced your server's name?

Can you expand more on how you did this?

This may be the cause of your errors and we will need to rectify this.

if you have changed your servers DNS name by going to system preferences then I am afraid that is the cause of the issue.

please elaborate?

Please run the command sudo changeip -checkhostname from your terminal app and paste the results here for me.

I haven't changed my DNS at all.  checkhostname returns perfect DNS results:

Primary Address = 10.10.10.6
Current Hostname = pss.pss.private
DNS Hostname = pss.pss.private

The names match.  There is nothing to change.
dirserv:success = "success"

There wasn't anything I did that immediately made this change happen.  I came into the office one day and that came up whenever I clicked on any services.  I'm not too sure exactly what to check in terms of logs to see what could have happened?

Nappy, when I said I replaced my server's name, I just mean I changed the text here to show you what it displays.  I didn't change my server's name at all.  So it displays like this: "The Service has encountered an error.  Try to refresh the view (pss.pss.private/iCal). (kNetworkError)" and so on, replacing iCal with whichever service I clicked on.  It doesn't happen everytime, but it happens probably once a day or so.

Thanks for your replies.
